RFC-Editor does NOT want citations in abstract. I bet they will "fix"
that if you leave them in. Better would be an abstract aka:
This specification defines a Management Information Base (MIB) for
use with SNMP-based network management. In particular, it defines
objects for configuring, monitoring, and controlling routers that
employ the Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol for both IPv4 and
IPv6 as defined in RFC xxxx (RFC-editor, this is currently
draft-ietf-vrrp-spec-v2-09.txt) and RFC yyyy (RFC-Editor, this is
currently draft-ietf-vrrp-ipv6-spec-04.txt). This memo obsoletes
That way RFC Editor knows what to do I think.

I would kepp them.
